October stamp of the month cards

October Stamp of the month cards. Hurry you can only get this stamp set in Oct. Let me know if you would like this set.
Here is my favorite new card technique.   It called a pop out card.  You start with a 8"x5 1/2" piece of cardstock and score it at 2", 3" 5" 6"  Fold it so the center pops out. On the back side you glue a shape only on the left of the fold, that helps it stand up.  Add B&T strips to the front 3 panels and a sentiment in the middle.  Watch for the Thanksgiving card in the next post.

Christmas Card making day

Here are the cards that I taught at the fun
Christmas Card Extravaganza.  This was a swing card using Artfully Sent.  We used the new White Pines paper and compliments.  The little snowflake was cut from the new Artistry Cricut cartridge.  We backed the large snowflake with blue glitter paper and added red bling.   

This card was made the new color cardstock Eggplant, blk glitter paper and b&t paper from the La Vie En Rose paper.  Notice the snowflake is from the first card. Silver embossing, Merry Christmas finished it off.
